ATLANTA, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Joe Johnson scored 26 points Wednesday and Atlanta extended its winning streak to five games with a 107-95 victory over Indiana.

The five-game streak is the Hawks' longest since 1999. Atlanta, one of the bigger surprises of the NBA season, remains 2 1/2 games behind Orlando in the battle for the lead in the Southeast Division.

Indiana was within five midway through the fourth period, but Anthony Johnson made a three-pointer and the Hawks dominated from there.

Josh Smith added 16 points for Atlanta, winners of eight out of 10. Marvin Williams contributed 14.

Indiana was led by Troy Murphy with 19. Jermaine O'Neal and Jamaal Tinsley had 16 each. The Pacers had won four of their previous five.
